Current College Students - Baseball Assistant Coaches at Cam
Company: Camp Cobbossee for Boys
Posted on: May 2, 2019
Cobbossee is a 4-week, 2-session sleepaway summer camp in Maine.
The dates for this position run from June 10th to August 11th,
2019. For more on what summer camping actually is, see the very
bottom of this document!
Cobbossee is looking for a few talented and motivated Baseball
Instructors / Counselors. Situated in the middle of our huge, green
campus lies our professional Baseball Program. Bluey (our full-size
baseball field) is the gem of Cobbossee along with his smaller
brother Joey. Baseball is one of the most popular program areas at
Cobbossee. This is all down to our veteran Head of Baseball, Tom
Donahue whose accolades include coaching multiple Red Socks farm
teams earlier in his career and winning state championships in his
current role as a High School Baseball Coach, not to mention his
immaculate care of our grounds and attention to every boy on his
field. This is why our program is especially professional and
developmentally ran. Everybody loves baseball at Cobbossee!
Each Baseball Instructor/Counselor lives in a bunk with (and cares
for!) a set of campers and works at the fields during the day,
teaching baseball to a range of age groups and skill sets, all
under the watchful eye of Coach Donahue. This position is also
responsible for the upkeep of the fields, inter-camp baseball
competitions and generally contributing to a strong team. The
baseballs staff's identity is especially strong at Cobbossee!
Ever wanted to see New England? Well, in addition to your salary
and bonus, Cobbossee will provide you with a travel stipend so you
can get out to Maine without spending your own money.
Room and board are also provided, so you won't spend any of your
own money all summer on living expenses (the food is famously good
at Cobbossee. No, really, it is).
Further, days off and nights out are spent with other adventurous
folks like you. Our counselors make lifelong friends at Cobbossee.
Many return year-to-year.
OTHER POSSIBLE BENEFITS
We can configure your employment this summer as job training, an
internship, or just a really great summer job. Our director, Josh
Holland, is a former academic and can make sure your experience is
converted into internship credit if that's what you want. If you
are in any child-centered major (teaching, education, coaching) or
any sports-related field (sports management, kinesiology, movement,
physical-education), this experience can be one of the best-paid
internships you can find.
THE BOTTOM LINE
"Summer jobs" are often seen as throwaway jobs. Not here. This job
is going to challenge you. You are going to give of yourself, have
an absolute blast, develop strong friendships with your peers, and
really make a difference in young people's lives.
You should come to work at Cobbossee because we are one of the
best. We develop counselors like we develop campers. You will
change for the better. It will truly be the summer of your
For anyone not familiar with the huge world of sleepaway camps in
New England, it works as follows:
All over the northeast each summer, families send their boys and
girls up to New England to spend anywhere from a couple of weeks to
the entire summer at a sleepaway camp. Sometimes people who are not
from the east coast see this as a strange choice, maybe even a mean
choice! "Don't they like their kids?" the question goes. Of course,
they do. They love their children and it's hard for them to be away
from them for the time they are at camp. But parents sacrifice time
with their kids in the summer because summer camp is really good
for young children. Camp (especially longer-term camps of
four-to-eight weeks) teaches children independence, self-reliance,
and confidence through the teaching of new skills, improving at
sports, and living away from home. It isn't always easy. But it is
worth it! Crucial to this process are you, the counselor. You
become like a family member to the campers in your cabin. In fact,
you will find yourself developing really fast yourself, just so you
can be the best counselor and instructor possible for your kids! It
is rewarding, challenging, and transformative work to care for
